Art imititating art, imitating life. The PUSH is PIETY’s skate deck inspired collaborative brainchild with Natas Kaupas. It combines a stubby directional outline (a la 80′s skate deck) with a low rocker profile, subtle forward planning hull and exagerated vee out the tail for a ride that is lightening fast and surprisingly responsive.

The PUSH is ridden exclusively with hand shaped skate deck keel fins for extra stylish rail turns and conversation fodder. Ideal for having fun.

I got to take the PUSH out for her maiden voyage the other day at Uppers. Wasn’t sure what to expect, but was pleased with how she went. The waves were head high and glassy, so I felt like I was able to make a fair assessment. The board is super flowy, I had a tonMORE
